Went for training Saturday evening and worked on several PSA - PDC scenarios and I was thrilled that my dog outed when I asked him to without any corrections. Here is the disclaimer - he bit on command and decoy gave him a good fight and let him have the sleeve, I took him away from the decoy and asked him to out and he dropped the sleeve - we did it 3 times and he did it each time. Did the same when we did the car -jacking scenario. As per advise from Centurian and others I did use the 2 ball technique and later the 2 sleeve technique and worked on the "aus" by making it a game for about a week and a half and did no bitework with him during that time. Last Saturday was the first time we did the "aus" - it was a great feeling to see him do it - now we have to continue proofing till I am 100% confident that he really got it. Of course, now we have to practice the "aus" on command with the decoy still wearing the sleeve and see how he does. One step at a time but we are slowly getting there. Once we get past this we can make some real progress as he has absolutely 0 issues with biting on command and not biting even with the decoy standing next to me, holding the sleeve right in front of his face and almost touching his mouth. Then I give him the command and he barks and bites with no hesitation and full force. He did the same with the car -jacking scenario - first time we have ever done that.

Also, for the first time I decoyed for my TD's IPO 1 female GSD, they were practicing - running the blinds while training to get her IPO2 and I took several bites in the blind. That was a very interesting experience - but I will leave it for another topic.
